In the U.S., mandatory education dates back to the 17th century, when Massachusetts became the first state to impose schooling regulations. It was the dawn of the nationwide system we know today, where children begin learning early and education is required for personal advancement. And while the curriculum may have evolved since then, the basic principles haven’t changed much. These days, professional success is almost certainly hinged upon higher and continued education.
